Welcome to the Sleaford Classic Car & Motorcycle Show
Video highlights from this years show
2017 marks the 25th anniversary of our small and friendly classic car and motorcycle show held in the historic Lincolnshire Market Town of Sleaford. (to see how our show has evolved click here) The show venue on Lafford Terrace, Eastgate is within an easy five minutes’ walk of the town centre and the site is accessible to all. Ample car parking can be found close by (see map) on Boston Road, Kesteven Street and Moneys Yard (2-3 minutes’ walk). Visitor entry to the show is free of charge and you can look forward to seeing a wide range of historic and classic cars, motorcycles, scooters, commercial and military vehicles and trade stands. (for trade stand application form click here)
Last year’s show attracted car entries ranging from a 1928 Austin 12 to a 2002 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage. On the motorcycle front entries included a beautiful 1927 AJS H9 (500cc) through to machines such as the iconic Ducati 996 Biposto from 1999. With a wide variety of lovingly maintained classics covering 9 decades of motoring history. (for vehicle entry application form click here) With evocative marques on show including Lea Francis, Daimler, Rolls Royce, MG, Alfa Romeo, Triumph, BSA, Velocette, Norton, to the more workaday Ford’s Austin, VW, Honda and Yamaha our motoring heritage is on display for all to see.
The show cars and motorcycles will awaken memories of those sunny Sunday drives to “Skeggy” in grandad’s Morris Minor Traveler or perhaps the school run in mum’s Ford Escort. Maybe it was the car you always promised yourself but for a myriad of domestic reasons it was made of unobtanium. Or the bike your mates had but your parents/other half put their foot down. You may have owned one of these makes in the past, well maybe not a Ferret Scout Car, but those lazy, hazy, rose tinted days gone by, be they of drain-pipes and crepes, flares and dodgy perms or shell suits and trainers, will come flooding back, even if for just a few minutes. The 2017 Sleaford Classic Car and Motorcycle Show has much to offer to visitors of all ages and is a great free show for all the family.
Thanks to the shows many sponsors, trophies for the various classes of vehicle entries are awarded at the end of the show as judged by the visitors to the show using voting slips provided in the show programme. So, come along and vote for your favourites on the day. (for details of judging classes and trophies click here)
This year we are very pleased to announce that towards the end of the show there will be a fly past by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight’s Supermarine Spitfire (weather permitting). If the cars and bikes don’t get your nostalgic juices flowing the Spitfire certainly will!
Sleaford is a small friendly rural market town located 20 miles south of Lincoln and the annual show attracts many exhibitors from across the county and beyond, bringing all manner of classic vehicles from the pristine to the everyday. There are also trade stands, exhibitors and much more for all the family, so why not pop along and enjoy Lincolnshire’s premier free classic car and motorcycle show.
